Bank Innovation selectively accepts outside contributions from industry experts that offer insights, promote best practices, and encourage an aggressive pursuit of innovation in financial services.

The guidelines for consideration are fairly simple: posts should match BI’s tone and areas of regular coverage. Learn what Bank Innovation is all about.

Articles that advance the conversation around innovation and best practices are our favorite. Don’t use too much jargon, and try to keep it engaging. Throwing in a few data points or a news peg is always welcome.

Generally, we try to keep our posts between 400 to 700 words, but will consider longer pieces on a case by case basis. Non-exclusive posts – those that have been featured elsewhere – will be considered, but priority is given to original content, which you can republish later (please make a note if the content has already been published). Please, include a sentence-long bio of the author at the end of the post.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept pitches, outlines, press releases (only ready-to-go drafts), as well as posts with excessive self-promotion, and those written by “organizations,” instead of specific authors. We will, of course, be happy to discuss your draft, once submitted.

If you would like to become a contributor, please email your completed drafts to Tatjana Kulkarni, Deputy Editor, by clicking here. Do not hesitate to contact us with any further questions.
